His death certificate states that he died about 3½ years from the date of his WWII Draft Card (4 months was in the hospital). He died from cancer of the bladder and prostate which had metastasized. It doesn't say how long he had the cancers but the prostate cancer was found in an operation a couple weeks before death.
